Sir Henry recognized the sound as what the people called the cry of the Hound of the Baskervilles.
‘Watson,’ said the baronet, ‘it was the cry of a hound.’
My blood ran cold in my veins, for there was a break in his voice which told of the sudden horror which had seized him.
‘What do they call this sound?’ he asked.
‘The folk on the country-side.’
‘Oh, they are ignorant people. Why should you mind what they call it?’
‘Tell me, Watson. What do they say of it?’
I hesitated but could not escape the question. ‘They say it is the cry of the Hound of the Baskervilles.’
